MURRAY COOK'S SOUL MOVERS
Led by long-legged Perth-born Lizzie Mack, a charismatic frontwoman with a penchant for groovy 1960’s vintage, and featuring the much-loved legend, and ex-Red Wiggle, Murray Cook, The Soul Movers musical tour-de-force across a hip and funky musical spectrum has made them one of the most exciting live and festival acts on the touring circuit today.
Backed by a band oozing with musical talent, The Soul Movers have recorded in both the US and Australia to create four critically-acclaimed albums which are regularly presented with humour and passion on many of Australia’s biggest stages and most-loved festivals.
Evolving with over a decade of experience and collaboration, the outfit enjoys a stable union and magical combination with the resulting creation of three albums for ABC Music / UMA: ‘Testify!’, ‘Bona Fide’, and last year’s release – ‘Evolution’.
Since showcasing ‘Testify!’ at SXSW in 2017, then ambitiously recording ‘Bona Fide ’ at seven iconic studios across the United States (including Sun and Royal Studios in Memphis and Fame and Muscle Shoals Sound in Alabama) the band’s sound has only grown from strength to strength.
This is music that is all about the soul – its passion, emotional nuance, heartbreak, celebration, hurt and love. ‘Bona Fide’ is the sound of a talented, experienced bunch of soul-music lovers making a record where the essence of this passion and feeling is coursing through their veins. -Brian Wise, Editor, Rhythms Magazine
Experiencing the Soul Movers live is an essential experience for anyone seriously interested in that broad umbrella of “live music.” -Bernie Howitt, RAM Magazine
